So you're looking to hire a GoGet car, but aren't convinced that it's right for you!? Our flock of sheeple are woolly good at getting under the hood, so he's what we know.
GoGet is Australia’s first and largest car share network, with access to almost 3,500 cars in their fleet across Australia. Car share is often considered more convenient than traditional car rentals, cheaper than owning a car, and is more flexible than both.
Get geared up and ready to go with answers to some common curly questions below.
GoGet is a trading name of CarShare Australia Pty Ltd. It was founded in 2003 by directors Nic Lowe and Bruce Jeffreys to bring car-sharing services to Australia. The company aims to provide reliable, convenient and affordable car rental services. Learn more about the GoGet story.
There are no restrictions on where you can travel to within Australia, as long as you've booked enough time to cover your whole journey.There are, however, some restrictions on the types of roads you can drive your GoGet car on. You're not allowed to drive on unsealed roads, on beaches, or through streams, dams, rivers or floodwaters. Basically, stick to sealed and gazetted roads and you're good to go. Snow is also a no go.
Yikes, being involved in a crash can be stressful at the best of times, but the pressure can mount when it's not your car. Don't worry, just contact GoGet straight away and they'll guide you through it. Obviously, if it is serious you should contact emergency services.
Insurance is included with GoGet, but like most insurances, there is an amount you are liable for in the event of an accident. The amount ranges from $2,000 up to $4,000 depending upon your age and the type of vehicle (see below). You can pay to reduce this excess to somewhere between $300 and $1,500.
A policy with Car Hire Excess could cost as little as $10* a day and if you do have an accident, no matter whether it's the underbody or tyres, you pay nothing, zero, zilch, nada! You’d be maaaaad not to buy car hire excess with Baaaney instead.
